Watching this show on Netflix and didn‘t realize it was based on a book...guess what‘s now on my TBR!!
#currentlyreading When there is a tv show or movie I want to see, I read the book instead. I'm terrible at watching tv. Started this morning and kind of wishing I had kept up with my German lessons so I could read it untranslated.
This book was SO SAD. All of the weird things that happened to her growing up... no wonder she stabbed that dude without a moment of hesitation. I really liked the way the book played out-you knew there was a reason she did it, but it took a while to fully understand why.
This book is creeping me out so far. Cora is something else. I purchased it after discovering it on Netflix. I haven‘t watched the series yet though. Perfect Halloween-ish book I guess 😏 🎃👻
I almost forgot about this book. I watched the first three episodes of #TheSinner last year and stopped with the intention of reading this book. Time passed and I completely forgot. Tonight I rewatched the first three episodes and now I remember why I wanted read this book. Has anyone read it or watched the show?

I watched the first two episodes of the series based on this book at the beginning of the year and got hooked. The episodes were not moving fast enough for me so I just had to go purchase the book lol. I NEED to know the answers to the questions I have! 🤓
This novel felt like one long run-on sentence in a good way. I couldn‘t stop reading. Some of the translations were awkward and the novel definitely could have been half the length, but it was all about the journey through Cora‘s mind, not just the end reveal. I wouldn‘t recommend reading this novel if you‘ve already seen the miniseries and it definitely isn‘t a novel fit to everyone‘s style. Read this if you enjoy character studies.
Food and a book 👌🏻
#currentlyreading and I am sucked right in! A bit more than halfway done and I only picked it up a couple hours ago 😳
Added The Sinner to my TBR recently after watching the miniseries. One of the best shows I've seen in awhile & the denouement was heartbreaking. I loved the multi-dimensional characters & exploration of themes like religiosity & trauma. Bill Pullman as Detective Ambrose was terrific, bringing more depth to the character than your average TV cop. Jessica Biel, however, carried the show, portraying Cora with empathy, grace & fortitude.
“One of the best examples of a “whydunnit” in recent years, German author Hammesfahr‘s twisty novel (also a USA mini-series) is largely told in flashback after Cora Bender, a seemingly normal mother and housewife, inexplicably stabs a man to death while on a beach picnic with her family. Cora confesses readily and claims to have no idea why she just committed homicide..”📚Has anyone read or watched this?

It‘s been a few days and I still can not get over the fact at how this book left me speechless. I love how Petra keeps you guessing with every chapter until the shocking ending. There also is a cliffhanger of an ending which left me thinking about the fate of Cora. I could read this book again and again and find something new every time. Definitely a good read for mystery and thriller lovers out there!
I'm watching The sinner and it's so good I'm regretting not have read the book. I'm this way. I gotta read the book before watching the movie/ tv show. The reverse doesn't work for me.... 😭 #moviesXbooks
Look ? what FINALLY arrived today! ?? My first #BOTM pick #LittleFiresEverywhere and #TheSinner! This is a dark, spellbinding novel where the truth isn't what it seems. One day by the lake, a young, quiet mom, Cora, stabs a stranger to death beside her family. She confesses but the "why" doesn't add up. So begins the slow unraveling of Cora‘s past, a harrowing descent into the depths of her own psyche and the violent secrets buried within. #TBR
Ya'll, I'm in such a reading slump 😒 I've started so many books and can't seem to finish any... They're all good books I just don't seem to be in the mood for any of them. Now I'm overwhelmed looking at all the books I still have to finish. *sigh* #readingslumpssuck
#WeekendPlans! I just picked up The Sinner and the new Paper Girls yesterday.
I have under 100 pages left in The Grip of It. It isn't super scary, but it's definitely creepy and has that nice, slow build-up of dread that I like.
I'm diving back into Tomie. I love Junji Ito's work, but I'm struggling with Tomie. I think I need to plunge through the first few stories. It's pretty well reviewed so maybe I just haven't hit my stride with it yet.
Haven't been much into T.V. lately, although I did get hooked into this twisted series! I was even more excited to hear it was based off a book! On tonight! I'm looking forward to reading the book. Has anyone read it? @penguinusa @PenguinPublishing
Ok, definitely watching this show very soon! This book wasn't exactly what I expected, but it kept me guessing and wanting to read more until the very last paragraph. I think a few words and terms got lost in translation from German to English. I'm really interested to see how it translates to TV. I saw it described as a psychological thriller, but the pace was too slow for me to call it a thriller. Psychological, yes. Thriller, no.
Thank you Book of the Month for a book for me and a friend, and a great new tote bag too!! #botm
Here we go! Excited to start this one!
